Lesson learned:

When you have Christmas Eve off of work, always remember to turn off the 4:00 a.m. alarm before retiring for the night.

I hope this day off was a Christmas gift for employees and not part of your cutbacks.


No, we get paid for today.  It is next Monday we have off without pay.

I have been enjoying a delicious hot chocolate/rum concoction at this new bar/restaurant gig I have two nights a week.  Does that make me an alchy?  :)


Only if you are wanting one at this time of day!

THE TOP FIVE HOLIDAY MOVIES ACCORDING TO MOVIEFONE

5.)  WHITE CHRISTMAS
4.)  SCROOGED
3.)  MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET
2.)  IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE
and the #1 holiday movies is:

1.)  THE CHRISTMAS STORY

Not my choices, but, "Oh well."

5 and 4 aren't on my list! I'd add THE REF and one of the versions of A CHRISTMAS CAROL, Alistair Sim, George C Scott, or Patrick Stewart. I love CHRISTMAS STORY!

Well, maybe by next Christmas, you will have CHRISTMAS STORY - THE MUSICAL on the Great White Way.

http://www.5thavenue.org/show/achristmasstory1011/


It got good reviews in Seattle.

I would like to see it. My friend Larry Blank does very good work and I'm sure the show sounds fantastic! The problem with all these musicalizations of wonderful films is will the cast measure up to its originals? I don't want to see a Dolly Parton-Reese Witherspoon-whoever impersonation after the real McCoy!

Keith has decided he wants the new Nook.  When he called Barnes and Noble they had just gotten some in and he was able to pay for one over the phone.  I guess we will be taking a trip up there sometime today, or he and Bryan will go.  It will be a good way for me to find out if I like it.

Cilla he wanted color.

Keith & Bryan are now searching reviews for a wifi booster so the nook will work anywhere in the house.  With luck  my computer will work better/faster with the booster.

Druxy, I defy you not to guess the putative "big twist" in SALT (the one toward the end).  I saw it coming within seconds of the film's setup.

Tonight's the night we go to my cousin Debra's for Christmas Eve Dinner.

My Uncle Rock is barbecuing chickens for it!!  I have no idea what the rest of the menu will be.  In years past, I have twice prepared spaghetti sauce for a nice spaghetti dinner.  We've had hamburgers, steak and pork loin on other Christmases.

It promises to be loud, crowded, and Debra's hubby's brother will undoubtedly make his annual visit with his cousin and daughter in tow just as we are all eating.  His daughter will undoubtedly have a plate and some dessert during the 10 minutes or so they will stay.  She's a (perpetually) growing little girl.

My Mom will undoubtedly stay longer than I wish to...out of politeness/decorum, of course...but we will inevitably escape and come home where we will exchange our gifts before bedtime.

Tomorrow night, it will start all over again, with the same people (sans the brother/cousin/daughter of Debra's hubby) and more who cannot come tonight.  It will be across the street.  I shall stay just as long as I can stand it...hopefully to have some meaningful conversation with a few people during what promises to be several hours of confusion, chaos and perpetual self-congratulations/self-promotion/self-involvement of several of the attendees (it's the one-upmanship syndrome that requires each to trumpet himself to the skies at every gathering).

I will take what I can of it, and then I shall retreat to my home and the television.

Howasomever:

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Good Night!

I felt the waving of a magic wand, and so I had to stop in to wish one and all a Merry Christmas.

And some greetings from the wildlife:

The color one is nice. For me, the back light would be too hard on my eyes all the time.

I'm up, I'm up - after the sleep I so obviously needed.  Wow (wow, spelled backwards).  So, in just thirty minutes I'll begin slicing and dicing and mincing, oh my.

I'm envious of your ability to sleep so well, and late, when you need to.

We've had 4 1/2-5 inches of snow.  It's beautiful

Well, after 8 years, Woody has gotton over his "wonderment" at snow. He was appropriately annoyed at last weeks blizzard (a walloping 2 inches) that kept the car prisoner in the drive for two days. The streets were cleaned promptly but the ice patch at the top of the driveway hill was impassable for a few days. (To escape from our drive, you need to roar up a steep hill and do a controlled right turn onto the road; if you turn a bit too tight, you clip our retaining wall, if you turn too wide, you wipe out the neighbor across the street's mail box; and, because the car has front wheel drive, you lose traction when the car is trying to crest the hill - little weight on the front wheels .)
